New York- The New York Yankees wrapped up their victory at the 27th World Series Championships with a parade down the Canyon of Heroes in Manhattan, New York, the place that is famous for the ticker-tape parades that are always held there. It is located in the Broadway and Financial District. The parade will be held on Friday and will begin at around 11 am in the morning. The last time the New York Yankees held a parade was in 2001. The New York Yankees parade 2009 will be held in celebration of bringing the World Series home and defeating the Philadelphia Phillies in New York itself.
The Yankees parade 2009 will start at the Battery Place in Broadway and will continue to the Chambers Street. The heroes of the day, Derek Jetter, Alex Rodriguez and the rest of the team will be treated to showers of confetti all along the route. The procession will lead up to the City Plaza. There, the team will be presented the key to the city, a great honor, by Michael R. Bloomberg, the mayor of New York.
The sidewalks of the Yankees parade route will be open to the public. Limited tickets are being issued for the public. The City Hall is too small to hold such a huge congregation, so a large screen will be installed for the people to watch the celebrations inside. The mayor of New York will be joined by Mr. Nutters, who will be wearing the Yankees jersey, to paint a mural on the walls of the Albert Einstein School. Needless to say, fans will throng the venue to be a part of the Yankees Victory Parade 2009.
